Representation: The proposal to build in Braiswick is contrary to the contents of the Council's Plan in respect of Green Spaces:
Given the large-scale developments already approved within the Myland area there is certainly no benefit in the development of Braiswick that could outweigh the loss of the green space.

Original submission

In addition to the response below, I would like to add that the proposal to build in Braiswick is contrary to the contents of the Council's Plan in respect of Green Spaces:

'The Council will aim to provide a comprehensive green infrastructure network comprising strategic green links between the rural hinterland, river corridors and open spaces across the Borough. It will seek to protect and enhance the existing network of green links and open spaces and to create new green infrastructure where deficiencies and gaps are identified to provide corridors that will benefit both wildlife and people. The Council will also work with access stakeholder/groups to support the development of a 'new' multi user route, the Colchester Orbital, around urban Colchester.'

'Proposals that cause loss or harm to the green infrastructure network will not be permitted unless the need for and benefits of the development outweigh any adverse impacts. Where adverse impacts on green infrastructure are unavoidable, development will only be permitted if suitable mitigation measures for the network are provided. Key linkages will be constructed to a suitable standard to allow year round secure usage by all.'

Given the large-scale developments already approved within the Myland area there is certainly no benefit in the development of Braiswick that could outweigh the loss of the green space.
